We don’t need all the fancy
trappings that come with our
Imagine living by the ocean
with endless views of the sky and water.
A boat to take us where we need to go.
The cry of the seagull ringing in our ears.
No big houses with empty rooms
or over-sized electronic devices.
Peace and quiet will soothe our nerves.
We would be able to write and create
to our heart’s desire.
We would feel fulfilled.
No worries about keeping up with the neighbors
for our neighbors will have what we have:
A comfortable home with free time to
enjoy life for the first time.
